Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have separated, and the 41-year-old actress used her blog to share the news with her fans. ABC News reports on March 25 that Paltrow turned to her Goop blog to post about conscious uncoupling. Rumors about the couple’s marriage issues have been circulating online for a while, but this is the first official confirmation about their split.
Paltrow shares that the couple has been working on the relationship for the past year, but they feel that a separation is best at this time. The actress points out they will continue to co-parent their two children and will stay a part of their lives. After almost 11 years of marriage, Martin and Paltrow are apart, but critics claim their relationship has been suffering for a long time.
At the Golden Globes, experts argued about the couple’s body language and used it as an example of marriage trouble. Paltrow continued to present a united front for the media and claimed the marriage was still strong. However, she is finally ready to share the truth with the world and admit they are separated.
The actress is not letting the separation slow her down, and she recently shared a selfie without makeup on social media as she drank water. Paltrow is also continuing her role on “Glee” and has been posing for photos with the rest of the cast. Despite her public life, she is asking for privacy as she deals with her separation.
